a couple of things i want the public tknow they can do. first of all, because, you know, our local law enforcement, our first responders are being swamped, to the extent that everybody can be out there looking out for their neighbors, especially older folks, i think that's really important. if you've got a neighbor nearby and not sure how they handle a power outage, flooding, et cetera, go over and visit them, knock on their door. make sure that they're doing okay. that can make a big difference. the public can be the eyes and ears in terms of identifying unmet needs. second thing. the reason we're here is because the red cross knows what it's doing when it comes to emergency response, and so for people all across the country who have not been affected, now is the time to show the kind of generosity that makes america the greatest nation on earth and a good place to express that generosity is by contributing to the red cross. obviously, you can go on their website. the red cross knows what they're doing. they're in close contact with federal, state and local officials. they will ma

and why it's localized and why it's left to states and 13,000 different voting districts which may have their own ballot design, voting rules and creates a lot of chaos and a lot of latitude for partisan interests to get in there and manipulate in a loosey goosey decentralized i would say chaotic system. >> victoria, it seems to me we should have a singular system that works one way, everybody understands the rules and do it the same way at the same time. i think there are clear reasons why we don't make voting as easy as possible and registration as easy as possible. what are some of the reasons why voting is not easier and registration is not easier? >> well, a lot of states are fond of their voting systems and stretches back to 1787. i don't want to dump on the founding fathers too much but they made compromises drafting the constitution. >> terrible parents. >> in therapy for 200 years in consequence. they made a bunch of necessary compromises to get the constitution passed and one of the biggest ones is laws regarding elections are administered by the state. we have gotten pretty c

thing back to what you say the national versus the local, i believe at the beginning of the convention was that the local conditions on the ground didn't really matter. it was the national economy. it was the national messaging, and that everything would sort of stwing in the same direction at the same time. this campaign has sort of pushed that logic aside. we see states like ohio where the president is hanging strong, and orr ones like wisconsin where he gained 15 points on him. >> i remember the reaction of democrats and republicans in 2000. the thing that jumped out at me. week brs the 2000 election, the assumption was that al gore had the electoral college advantage. bus would win the popularity joke. the republicans began to make noise, and it involved potentially trying to flip over gore electors and stay the will of the people needs to be up respected ear. that changed that philosophy when the results came in. i wonder what your reaction would be and what you think the reaction of the conservatives in general would be if this time around romney wins the popular vote and barack

. >> please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. don't pause. don't question the instructions that are being given, because this is a serious storm and it could potentially have fatal consequences. >> this storm is so massive, so unlike anything we've seen before that parts of the country like here in west virginia are bracing for blizzard conditions. we begin our breaking coverage with nbc's ron allen. he's along the "jersey shore." ron, describe the conditions where you are right now. >> reporter: it's gotten much worse in the last couple of hours. i'm standing on top of a sand tune about is it 12 feet tall. i have top anchor myself to maintain my position. we're keeping a close eye on the ocean back here, which is about 20 yards away and getting closer by the hour. the waves are as high as 10 to 12 feet it looks like. this dune about 30 yards wide is the last line of defense between the ocean and the town of point pleasant beach, which is this way in front of me. there's a lot of flooding in that town a

the local economic numbers are having an impact in the battleground states, i would say that the local campaigns that are being run are also making a difference. if you take a look at those latest swing state numbers in ohio, there was almost one in five voters who had already cast their ballots in ohio and the president had a large margin, a large lead among those voters, 63 to 37%. that on the ground campaign matters. now it looks like the president is running a stronger on the ground campaign while romney has been doing reboot after reboot and trying to find out what his message is, the president has been banking voters. they've been holding these get out the vote rallies. michelle obama spoke at one recently and let's take a listen. >> here in ohio it is already election day. [ cheers and applause ] >> already election day. early voting starts today! today! >> she then went on to actually a marching band led the crowd down the street to the polling station, which is sort of amazing. so they are banking votes. and i think maybe that's giving them a sense of confidence despite the pr
